Online Health Option

Health is a graduation requirement. All students will be required to take a health course for one semester during the 9th grade.

The links for the forms located at the bottom of this page is for students with special circumstances or impacted schedules. A schedule is considered to be impacted if a student cannot take the Health course as a part of their regular school day. This may include students in programs such as IB, MERITS, APA, MUN, CIBACS, Honors courses and Band. These options are for those students only. Administrative approval is needed in advance for each student to select one of the alternatives listed below. Please indicate from the selections below when/how your student will complete this requirement. Parents of incoming 9th grade students are asked to wait until class scheduling begins in April to contact the student's home high school Assistant Principal and/or Guidance Staff.


  • Take the Health class in the 10th or 11th grade.
  • Take the Health class concurrently through adult school programs in the summer after the 9th grade, or during 10th or 11th grade.
  • Take the Health class from an approved program outside of HBUHSD. In order for a student to be eligible for this option, options 1 and 2 above must not be possible for the student.
